Recount 40 days

According to my count, there are 13 days left out of 40 days of Lent.  Easter is on March 31 that is more than 13 days from today!  Well, not only that I have thought so much about bacon, my mind cannot count either. 
To cite an example, I was reading other post and I came across with this picture.Little pig
Yummy… so I commented to the post. 
Seeker:  bacon
Response:  BACON!!! 
Uh-oh… I think I am in trouble here.  How am I supposed to respond to this?  The person on the other side does not know the history behind bacon.  This person sounded annoyed with all that exclamation points.  Okay, I am exaggerating, there was only one exclamation. 
Think, thank, and thump on the head.  A little bit of tact will go a long way.  So I replied back. 
Seeker:  Exactly!  Have you ever heard of Chris P. Bacon?  The luckiest pig alive ever! 
Response:  Oh the little pig on wheels. That is some pig! 
Whew … saved by a pig. 
For those who wants to know the story of Chris P. Bacon, here’s the link The joke is oink me.  
I was speaking with Sister #6 about 40 days of lent and explained to her my dilemma.  Apparently, weekends are excluded during Lent.  I stand corrected.  Knowing that, I can now eat bacon on weekends, happy dance.  Hooray, I can go to ABC Restaurant this weekend and eat all the bacon that I missed out.  Another save. 
Thank you Scott’s little pig for allowing me to use your post as a reference material.

  1. Never mind, as we get older we loose the ability to count lol I was watching a program about the brain and how that it can make you feel that time is slowing which it does if the body is in danger to allow us time to think to help us escape the situation. Maybe its the telling yu that chocolate and bacon is not good for you and giving you chance to survive lol. 😛

  2. My favorite that I missed while living with my Jewish daughter and her family during the birth of her two children was a bacon cheese burger… how I craved them…knowing they are not good for me lol…3 1/2 yrs without…

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
